Billion Improves Cross-Channel Business Up to 60% with 3G/4GLTE M2M Router

M200-pic2_1-230x155Billion Electric Corp. today launches the world’s first 3G/4G LTE router designed to maximize the productivity and the transaction security of retail PoS (Point of Sales), ATM transaction, Kiosks data transmission and vending machine applications while largely reducing operational overhead costs.

Billion, a global ICT leader in providing a complete portfolio of xDSL, Fibre, 3G, and 4G LTE cellular CPE devices, today announces the launch of Billion’s industrial-grade 3G/4G LTE router – M200, a compact, rugged router which can be easily deployed at any commercial hardware. M200 is deigned specifically to increase the system efficiency of Retail PoS, ATM, Kiosks and Vending Machine by demonstrating the capability of building a comprehensive network environment and strengthening the interoperability between front machines and back-end software systems and to bring solid internet security to data transmission.

“Inadequate network bandwidth often causes prolonged and time-consuming transactions, resulting in customer dissatisfaction and loss of store revenue. We are one of the industrial pioneers who create M2M routers primarily devoted to helping venues increase operational productivity through enhanced data transmission rate” says, Greg Chen, Senior Director of Communication Division at Billion Electric Co. Ltd.

M200 features automatic failover and failback between 4G cellular and Gigabit EWAN which effectively prevents internet outages and transmission breakdown. Embedded the high bandwidth capacity, M200 significantly shortens checkout times and boosts the store productivity by processing large size of files, such as customer profile and purchase history at the point of sales. Besides, 4G LTE enables camera surveillance to record facial identities and videos during the occurrence of theft and vandalism. In addition to the VPN integration, M200 protects customers and cardholders from fraudulent information used by external and internal entities through adding a secure encryption onto every ATM transaction and Kiosks inquiry. For vending machine applications, M200 retrofits the capability through real-time delivering digital purchase records, updating the current status of item stock holding, and connecting scattered individual machines to one central controller. Operators can minimize the maintenance costs and manpower inspections spent on checking different and distantly located machines in order to systematically refill the shortage items.

“Although it is still considered rare for commercial markets to start connecting their assets to the latest 4G LTE, the problems of transaction latency, data insecurity, and inefficient asset management can all be solved via the revolutionary M2M network communication solution”, saying, Greg Chen, Senior Director of Communication Division at Billion Electric Co. Ltd. “LTE adds competitive edges to PoS, Kiosk, ATM, and Vending Machines by supporting IP cam and digital imaging, as well as reduces transaction lead-times which will thereby stimulate the growths of store revenue and system productivity”.
